The Views and Voices programs are part of the Mill Valley Public Library’s Finding Common Ground effort to connect the community through conversation. Each month the Views and Voices programs spotlight a singular national social issue in depth through documentary film screening, book club & additional featured events.

The Views and Voices documentary screenings are followed by topical discussion, often featuring guest speakers associated with the film or experts on the topic. Everyone is welcome to arrive thirty minutes prior to the screening time for informal social discussion (Get to Know Your Neighbor!).

The Views and Voices book club will discuss books corresponding to the subject of the documentary screened the same month.

Feel free to attend each monthly event or just the one that appeals to you. Although the films, books and events align by theme, there is no requirement to attend all to appreciate one.

Please also view the Know Your Neighbor programs. Whereas the Views and Voices programs highlight national issues, the Know Your Neighbor programs offer engagement opportunities at the local level.

Our 2019 Reading Challenge is underway, and ties in with Views and Voices themes. Learn more here.
